O Emmanuel, Our King and Giver of Law...
O Emmanuel, our King and Giver of Law:
come to save us, Lord our God!
Mother Stuart's points of meditation on this antiphon:
1.God with us; when this is said, all is said, the desire of four thousand years and of all ages to come are accomplished; for eye hath not see, nor ear heard nor hath it entered into the heart of man, what there is laid up in this truth, that God is with us and that God is one of us.
2. All our work then is to prepare the ways of our Lord by expectation and desire of the coming salvation.
3. The keynote of religious life is: Domine Deus noster and God with us. Veni Domine Jesu jam noli tardare.
I always find something to send me into deeper prayer when I use Mother Stuart's meditations.
